Orange County Celebration of Heroes

About Orange County Celebration of Heroes

The Orange County Celebration of Heroes project was established to acknowledge and recognize the international scientists responsible for the discovery, development and deployment of the successful vaccines and everyday healthcare workers who performed extraordinary services to care for our most sick COVID-19 victims at incalculable personal sacrifice and risk. The Celebration will be a three-day event starting on Friday, April 29, 2022, at which the honored scientists will participate in a press conference at the National Academy of Sciences in Irvine, followed by a Q&A for the general public. It will culminate on Sunday, May 1, at which the honorees and public will be celebrating at a totally free concert at the Five Point Amphitheater in Irvine, featuring Gwen Stefani and friends, along with the Pacific Symphony Orchestra.
